Helping you find a career in the agriculture industry
If you've always wanted to work outdoors, the agricultural sector might appeal to you.
Those working in agriculture are responsible for the cultivation of plants and animals in order to provide food, medicine and other essentials. Working in this area could mean working on a farm, overseeing all operations during the production process whilst providing leadership and organisation, working within production or supply chain, and/or specialising in livestock, crops or horticulture.
The regulations in this industry are set by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to ensure safe, high-quality produce farmed in an environmentally sustainable manner.
For roles across the sector, it's likely that you'll be required to spend part of your time outdoors and part in an office environment. You might see opportunities for self-employment, too - around half of the industry works in this way.
